A Tale of Time City
A Tale of Time City
Price: 1.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly entertaining and satisfyingly complex, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this as a kid and still loved on re-reading it as an adult. Like lots of Jones' stories, this pits competent and smart kids against seemingly insoluble problems while their parents are distracted by other things. The timey-wimey stuff is beautifully developed and the different cultures entertainingly sketched. Just wonderful.

Lola Drake is a favourite of mine, and this is another short but sweet love story that's perfectly swoonsome and well written.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I know it's cheap, but it doesn't provide enough of a lip around the phone or enough of a corner to actually offer much protection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This doesn't tighten well at all. There are a couple of bits that rub as well, and there's no shielding at the top of the phone so if it rains, your phone will get wet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but..., 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is more for students of forensics than history, with more attention paid to body identification than anything else. I wish there had been something a little further on the (presumably) ongoing search for the two missing bodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody brilliant, 12 May 2014

Absolutely essential for running. Easy to get into, incredible support and they last well. Honestly, I have tried lots of sports bras and nothing's come close.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a patch on Ballet Shoes / Skating Boots etc, 10 Mar 2014

This is the story of a group of children putting on a pageant in World War II England, and while it's a nice look at life under rationining and during the tail end of conflict, it's not much more than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and encouraging stuff, 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My friend recommended this months ago and I regret that it's taken me so long to pick it up. This demystifies a lot of the process of building up your endurance as a runner and is hugely encouraging on overcoming roadblocks you might hit on the way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough advice, but it's pretty basic, 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is very much just a running plan and diet plan, and doesn't have a lot of really useful advice on starting to run, or getting to the next stage in your running. After reading Running Like A Girl and Born To Run recently, this felt sparse and also a little unreflective; there was no discussion of the reasons for some of the advice it gave and I feel like it could have given more tips on equipment and approaches for new runners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely hilarious and heartbreaking, sometimes at the same time., 14 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The blog version frequently makes me cry with laughter, and I was pleased to see that the new stories here managed the same effect. But they're funny because they have the ring of truth, which makes the Adventures In Depression all the more moving (while still laugh-inducing).
